It's awesome, but I got a problem understanding Happy

Where did you glue/sew the 3rd piece ? I mean, the two are glue together by sides, right ? Inner to inner. But the 3rd ? Below ?

Thanks again for this awesome how-to ! Happy

The project is great and I would like to make several, however can someone translate the instructions into proper English. I can not understand the author's broken English and it appears I am not the only one.
